Do we really Communicate?

Most of the problems in family strife, particularly between husband and wife, center around the problems of communication. From that point, all other things start. A stage is reached when the discussion levels are taken altogether differently and at different proportions, forgetting most of the time, the origin of the discussion. But by the time…

It’s Time for Change

We come across instances and situations in life where a change is necessary. Yet we, at times, just pass by that situation without caring to attempt that transformation. What we do at such times is, we change our thought of change and conveniently step out of the situation. Perhaps because we think we are too…

Frames that Stare at Us

I went to an art museum recently, where I found lots of frames hung on the wall. I could not understand the pictures drawn on them. There were quite a few of them. I thought I will understand at least one of them. But to my disappointment, I could not figure out anything. However, there…

Blue

Everyone has someone who, if life was a painting, would be the blue on their artist’s palette. Just as no painting is complete without it, so no moment, thought or experience in this life, is quite as beautiful or complete without them. They are the ones who shine like stars, lighting up the black night…

Suicide notes

We often read well-known suicide notes of iconic figures, and tear up a little then go on with our day…but have you ever teared up and started thinking deeper? Thinking of all the possible reasons that were behind this icon’s decision? Thinking of how a person who looks so complete, from your point of view,…

Make living Simple

We do many things in life – from morning till night. Even in the night, we dream. So we go on doing something or the other. When not doing, or while doing things, we do think a lot, sometimes intentionally and some other times naturally. At times, the flow of thoughts is such that suddenly…

We were Strangers Once

While delivering his speech on November 21, 2014, the then US President Barack Obama had, in his 15 minute address from the White House, said in relation to the new policies of US immigration — that deporting millions is “who we are” and cited Scripture, saying: “We shall not oppress a stranger for we know…

Nature heals everything

Do you ever sit under the stars and watch your entire life replaying in moving diamonds in an endless dark night? Actually…the real question is, Do you ever free some time to sit under the stars? It’s a busy world that we live in, we often get caught in time, 20 years pass and suddenly…

Changing Times

More often than not we get into the feeling that the times have changed. Times changed either for the better or for the worst, depending upon the experience of the person in his own situation. An introspection into this thought is worthwhile as to what one means by the change. In fact, nothing has changed…

The Joy of Giving

In all my life so far I have largely worked and lived for myself and people who are related to me; my family, my friends and other near ones. Since the last few months though, there is this intense fight in my mind to find my purpose and do something for society; anything for anyone….

Surfing the Waves of Life

Through the years, through the failed stories, and the happy endings, I always wished I was immune to new phases, I always wished I had the power to keep my emotions safe inside my heart, and not turn to a room of scattered emotions that you’d happily delay cleaning because you’re not ready to get…

Two Kinds of Love

The One Great Love. This love will teach you the word “love”.What it looks like. How it feels like. It is the beginning, your first step. It is a roller coaster of emotions. The sunshine to your rain or the water to your flowers. It’s butterflies and fairy tales and cloud-nines. A love so deep…

Worldmaker

The world is filled with possibilities. It was made that way. You live and move and have your being in a special state of open-endedness. Like most freedoms, your choices are hedged in by parameters set outside of you, but creativity and self-expression can grow strong and beautiful on the trellis, that is our universe….

So close, but still so far

The human mind is very intriguingly complicated. It has a tremendous capacity to reach out far and wide, but at the same time not able to get the grasp of things so close at many times. Be it the relationship among the family members, colleagues or anyone in the social milieu, there is a pattern…
